How to use US dollars and when to use the Yangon (Rangoon) message board
When you fire a big score at it, don't be amazed if you get a bunch of filthy marks back. Get beautiful greensbacks for the switch to Kyat & a mixture of about 20s-10s-5s-1s for what was said above. Tips are always better Kyats, if you go to places like Mingin, where there is a constant stream of visitors, you will be tormented by the young people trying to get you to alter your bills to 1000k.
Every pub, teahouse, restaurant, shop, taxi, bus and some boat take it. You can pay with either dollars or cyat. There is a cab from the Aiport that can be exchanged in Kyoto, whatever you do, don't exchange cash at the Aiport, just waiting until you get to the city. There are many diners in the area that don't take dollars, so make sure you always have Kie.
When you want 5000k bills to go only to a bench in the center of Yangon, they will be lucky to modify your bunch of 1000k bills, but don't modify too many if you go in the sticks, they will find it hard to find your spare one.
U.S. Dollar consumption increases against weakening Kyoto
Burma's financial analyst believes the U.S. dollar will appreciate further against the Kyats by the end of the year, the government cited. The strong investor preference for the euro over the Kyats has been reported to have resulted in a tightening of the US Dollars on the markets, which in turn has boosted consumer confidence.
Myanmar Central Bank (CBM) fixed its Wednesday benchmark at 1,210 kyats to the greenback against 1,205 the previous trading days and 1,200 on Monday as it tries a currency management system. On 15 July, the CBM stated that it would provide greater openness in the determination of benchmark prices.
The Global New Light of Myanmar said International Monetary Fund official warmly welcomes this move and said that the administered floating will reduce inflationary pressures and enshrine currency outlook.
